My guess is it's shit
Uh, I would think so. Wool / nylon blended, GAP fit (ie terrible), "imported" (read: made in china), and 75 bucks MORE expensive than what Shore has put together. That's not much competition.

If the first order is a success, will you do a second one?

And those ordering, make sure you give the size you're ordering as 40, 42, etc., rather than sm, med, large. CKM takes the orders with numerical sizes.

I sent you an email from my workemail account. Could you reply so as to make sure everything is complete and that my specs are ok?
Thanks again to the whole team.

Got it, thanks.

BTW, we've met the 6-order min.

Check the measurements on the first page--the s, m, l sizes are judgments made by a rakuten store, so take them with a grain of salt. The jackets are sized by chest, but they are cut large (they claim to give 6 inches of room, so a 40 would have an actual chest measurement of 46). I'm sizing down from a 42 (my usual size) to a 40, but I would not recommend sizing down too far--these just aren't meant to be designer-slim jackets.

But in a few months it'll be marked down to $25!

The scary thing is that's pretty much the exact color combo I was considering, although CKM's brown leather looks much darker.

Any updates guys? What is the total number of orders and who are in?
post #113 of 402
The leather on that Gap looks terrible!
post #114 of 402

went with the gap colors myself but more like these




definitely better looking

what are you thinking of in terms of patches. I don't neccesarily need them really. But if its ridiculously pretty..well you know.

Eccles where did you find those pics? Nice!

We have 7 orders in right now, and some rad-sounding combinations--I'm surprised there's so few, given initial the interest and the absurdly reasonable price, but <shrug> doesn't much matter to me so long as I gets mine.

Re: patches--I'm not interested, but let us know what you have in mind.
post #117 of 402
In terms of patches maybe Mauro should chip in on whats possible I was just thinking something simple on the arm maybe initials.... dunno

if most would prefer not I'm easy

I have seen some with embroidered names under the tag wonder if thats possible
